The narrators for Vampire Betrayed and The First Spell will complete production on May 31st. Usually, it takes a couple of weeks after that then the books are available for sale! So we should have lift-off in June!
Extreme Measures is a category bestseller at All Romance eBooks and continues its climb up the Amazon charts! To date, it has a four star plus rating!
Extreme Measures should be available in audio later this month!
My first non-fiction book, Gangbusters Audio, released on April 25, 2013. This book is for those authors who have audio books that just aren’t selling.
All three of the Vampire Destined novellas have made the top 100 category for Gothic Romance and Vampire Romance at Amazon, and Vampire Cursed and Vampire Forgotten have remained in the top 100 category for Gothic Romance since July of 2012!

Now You See Me, a romantic thriller, releases on August 29, 2013 from Ellora’s Cave’s Blush line.
Souls Divided, the prequel to my Spirits series, will release October 18, 2013.
I’m also working with a close friend on a non-fiction book which we hope will be finished later on this month! It’s called Conversations with my Sister: Life Shouldn’t be Black and White. We’d love to be able to release it this year as well.
I have four series coming up or currently in the works: Deja Vu, Universal Security (first book already released), Elemental Shifters, and Inner Demons. Here’s a little about them.
Universal Security-Half men, half machines, they guard the galaxy from threats Earth cannot handle. Along the way, they encounter immortals, vampires, and other paranormals who work to make their lives a little bit tougher. Not sure of the number of stories at this point, but at least three. I’m almost finished with the second book in the series now.
Deju-Vu—a delicious new paranormal romance series with reincarnation twists and sensuality. Three stories. Six couples. All looking for the happily ever after that has eluded them.
Elemental Shifters—Three (or possibly four) stories of special siblings who become part of the elements. Their journeys will take them through the sewers of New York City and into the dangerous mountainous firestorms…all in the name of love.
Inner Demons-Demon Hunters who are on the trail of unsuspecting half-demons, to catch them before their powers erupt and they cause havoc. Definitely at least three stories.
Works in Progress
Here are the things I’ve been working on and the status of each project!
I have a fantasy/sci-fi story underway which was originally first person, but I’ve now changed to third person. (Note to self: don’t ever do that again!) Think Superman meets Independence Day. I’m almost 20,000 words in now, and I’m aiming for at least 70,000 words. It could turn out to be shorter, though.
I also mapped out a storyline for my next romantic suspense. It’s got a lot of action, danger, and is more than a little spooky. I’m looking forward to being able to start writing it. I won’t start it, though, until after I finish the books I’m working on now. I don’t want to get too overwhelmed!
I also started a commercial fiction story, and I’m about 10,000 words into that one as well. What can I say? Sometimes the muse is really, really weird!
